'Clueless' is all set to come back, this time as a TV show centering around the character of Dionne Davenport. The TV series has been picked up by Peacock, NBC Universal’s recently-launched streaming service. Just like the movie, the show is also loosely based on Jane Austen's 1815 novel 'Emma', set in modern-day Beverly Hills.

The film version of 'Clueless' which debuted in 1995 and starred Alicia Silverstone as Cher and Stacey Dash as Dionne, is now considered a cult classic. The plot of the movie reads, "Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school's pecking order. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was and falls for him."

But this season is going to come with a twist, as rather than focusing on everyone's favorite Cher Horowitz, famously played by Alicia Silverstone, this show is set to focus on Stacey Dash's character, Dionne Davenport -- the best friend. After Cher goes missing, Dionne starts her hunt to find her best friend. The show's development was first reported back in October 2019, though no network or streaming service was attached at that time.

This isn't the first reboot of 'Clueless', in 1996, a spin-off TV show ran for three seasons, with the same name. In 2018, a musical version of the popular movie debuted as well.
